November Gaming

Hello there everyone! Well another games day has passed.  The theme for this month was: "Ask another gamer to bring a game you want to play" so I requested Galaxy Trucker. What a fun whacky game! You can't take this one seriously and if you do you'll be frustrated.

In Galaxy Trucker you build a spaceship by choosing tiles and placing them on a game board. But you only have a limited amount of time to assemble it and pieces can be taken off if the ship isn't put together properly. After making your ship, you and the other players race each other. During the race you face obstacles and can make money. The players go through these steps 3 times and your ship board gets bigger each time. The player with the most money at the end is the winner. The game was a blast! It's a big scramble to make your ship and funny to see it fall apart because of an illegal connection or meteors.

Other highlights of the day included: Firefly (cheers for bringing it Josh!) which I didn't play but was played 3 times throughout the day, Spyrium, Core Worlds and Red November. I've had Red November on my shelf for over a year and was happy to see someone request it. Drunk Gnomes operating an endangered submarine is all kinds of fun. Met some new folks and played some great games so it was another successful games day.
